The Canary Island Date Palm is also known as the "Pineapple Palm" because of the unique pineapple shape it forms after it is trimmed.

This large, stately palm often reaches a size too massive for most residential landscapes but fortunately, it is very slow-growing and will take a considerable amount of time to reach its 50 to 60-foot-height. Canary Island Date Palm is most impressive with its single, upright, thick trunk topped with a crown of 8 to 15-foot-long, stiff leaves with extremely sharp spines at their bases. The stalks of inconspicuous flowers are replaced with clusters of one-inch-diameter, orange-yellow, date-like, ornamental fruits which ripen in early summer. The trunk can reach a diameter of four feet and is covered with an attractive, diamond-shaped pattern from old leaf scars.

It does well as a street or avenue tree. Only prune fronds which hang below & do not remove those growing upright.
